In the Gargano and Daunia area instead, there are two very particular wines that could be considered as niche productions such as the Cacc’e mmitte di Lucera and the Nero di Troia. The best wineries to visit to discover these wines are definitely:
- Paolo Petrilli farm
- Alberto Longo farm
They are both located in the splendid setting of Lucera which, set on three hills, dominates the plain of Tavoliere delle Puglie, also known for its wheat production. Finally for whites, the most favourable area remains the one of the Murgia and specifically the Valle d’Itria. Wines such as Verdeca, Bianco d’Alessano and Minutolo have often been mixed in blends known as Locorotondo DOC. Now however, they are rediscovering their autonomous identity. The best wineries that host tastings of this type of wine are:
